Mild aroma, no alcohol smell. Mildly bitter taste with maybe a hint of dark chocolate. Didnít detect as much flavor as some of the other reviewers maybe because it was chilled a little low. Okay porter.

This is an OK porter that looks and smells really good when you pour it but, but the taste is a bit of a disappointment. its on the thin side and not full bodied. you could do a lot worse, but also alot better

For the price this is a great beer. This is a heavy hitter at 9.4%. Upon sipping this magnificent porter I was astonished by how well the alcohol was hidden. I would have guessed that this beer is around 6% if not for the label clearly stating the ABV. As others have stated, this beer does have a red hue to it. It looks very promising sitting in my tulip glass. The taste is a bit sweet for my liking but very palatable at the same time. This is a porter all beer geeks should try at least once. Keep in mind that I am rating this not only based on overall enjoyment but price.

leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Watery black pour and receding tan head. Aroma of sweet bread or cookies, caramel, brown sugar. Maybe even bubble gum somewhere in there. Flavor doesnít quite live up to the aroma. Roasted malt, brown sugar, lightly bitter. A bit of lacing. Reminds me of a Lion Stout. Big alcohol for a great price from an under-celebrated country. Thumbs up for that.

vulcanmeister (226) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2009
From 500ml bottle, pours dark brown with quickly receeding tan head. The aroma is brown sugar, hazelnuts, and carmel. The flavor didnít come through as strongly as I expected, with again brown sugar, some nuttiness, and a bit of bitterness. The alcohol kind of crept up on me unawares. Nice long finish echoing chocolate, dried fruit, and light biterness.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2005
Pours deep brown with a small white head. Smells strongly of roasted malts and licorice. Very strong taste of licorice in beer that covers up almost everything else, bitter aftertaste comes in afterwards.

Black boss is an incredible value and worth picking it up and keeping one or two on hand. The taste has some great roast malt character and a big dose of vanilla. The nose is toasted malt and lite oak/vanilla tones.

Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle- strong sweet nose. Strong sweet malty flavor. Develops increased character as temperature increases. Itís over the top sweetness...yeah...pretty much... Food pairing:Outstanding with bar-b-que. )

lagomswedish (213) - UmeŚ, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a dark brown with reasonable tan head that fades quickly. No stand-out aromas, but low levels of bitter chocolate and sweet fruit. I also got some banana (paw paw?). Itís way to sweet for me, with sickly sweet fruit, treacle and vanilla dominating an otherwise quite watery beer, which tastes flat and filtered. Minimal bitterness as expected while the alcohol dissappears in the sweetness. Overpoweringly sugary for me, making it all a bit of an effort to finish the glass.

Pours dark, dark brown. Aroma was syrupy and a bit of chocolate. I like the flavor, even though Iíve only had this type a few times now. Medium carbonation, oily, full mouthfeel. The 9.4% is hidden well. At 2.75 for a 16.9 oz. bottle, it is a great value. In fact, in terms of $ per alcohol-oz., this is the top beer I have found.
